Cavallo Inka Softshell Jacket - Tried & Tested
Cavallo Inka Softshell Jacket Night blue
When I saw this jacket online at Divine Equestrian I just knew I had to have it! Did I need it? No but, I had to have it ha ha. So off I go to check the finances and see what I can scrape together as not only do I need it, I need it NOW!
Suffice to say after planning beans on toast for dinner for the next few weeks (other half was in for a shock) I happily popped online and very satisfyingly placed my order.
As is always the case with this awesome company, it arrived the next day. Horror of all horrors, I was at work so had to wait till 6pm that evening to get to it, longest day EVER!
So I dash through the door yelling at my other half ‘have you got my parcel?’ He dutifully appears with parcel in hand, good boy. J Now I am one of those weirdos that has to open everything carefully, I think I Like to drag the excitement out. A few minutes later, there it is and it is just beautiful. Straight to a mirror to try it on.
Now as you may know from my previous Cavallo review, I am a bit of a fan of this brand for many, many reasons and I am happy to say that as expected this jacket was up to their usual fantastic standards and did not disappoint!
The night blue colour is just stunning. It’s not quite navy so a little different as you see so many classic navy blue jackets, which have their place but, it is nice to have something slightly different within that classic scheme. The fit as always is perfect, I am quite curvy and really appreciate Cavallo for taking that into account when they make their clothing as you can tell as soon as you put them on, they are really made for women.
So I have now been wearing this jacket most days when it is not too warm but, I am not going to lie it has not gone near a horse, it is far too pretty. So I have been wearing it to work instead and have actually had quite a few comments from work colleagues on how nice it is. I have not worn it in the rain yet but, I am really not worried as I know that the Cavashell and Aquaskin technology they use is super-efficient and will keep me dry.
I would highly recommend this jacket to anyone; it is super comfortable, practical and yet still manages to be incredibly stylish. Both the night blue colour and the silver are equally gorgeous with a silver zip and streamlined pockets. The branding is subtle and classy and not in your face which is nice so stop reading and go out and buy yourself one of these, remember YOU NEED IT!
